Does the engine turn over fast or is it sluggish? Headlights bright or dim? If engine turns over sluggish and headlights are dim, I'd suspect a defective/discharged battery or possibly a charging problem causing the battery problem. Start by making sure the battery cable terminals at the battery posts are clean and tight.

Put a voltmeter across the battery posts with the engine off, you should measure 12.8 volts if the battery is fully charged. Less voltage and the battery is not fully charged. When you try to start the engine, the battery voltage will drop momentarily when the starter is engaged. I would not be surprised to see the voltage to drop to 8-9 volts when the starter is engaged and the engine turning over. If it drops to a lower voltage, I would suspect a battery problem. The "service emmisions" light I would expect to be a secondary indication and resolve itself once the engine starting problem is resolved.

SOURCE: engine hesitating during acceleration

Ok, there are many issues here that you will need to inspect. I recommend changing the fuel filter and pump as well. this will fix the hesitation. the intake and exhaust manifold gaskets will need to be replaced as well. this will stop the backfiring.

I also recommend checking and running a teat on the PCV valve and inspect the PCV hose as well. it could have a leak or a small crack on it.

Check the air filter and change if needed. this will help with acceleration issues as well. Next, i would run a check on all plugs and the complete wire set as well. change if needed.

Inspect the injectors for leaks and lose wires. make sure they are in good condition. replace any injectors that isn't firing properly.

Ok, there are some sensors that you will need to check as well. i will list them below.

SENSOR CHECK LIST--

1. Check the O2 sensors for worn wires.
2. Check the MAFS(Mas Air Flow Sensors) Check for Damaged, Loose, or Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor or Circuit.
3. Check the Air Cleaner Temperature Sensor. this sensor could be damaged ro have loose wires. check accordingly.
4. Check the Throttle Position Sensor. this device could be connected wrong or it may be faulty as well. replace if needed.

Be sure and inspect all the above and repair any problem spot you ruin across during your inspection.

Please rate and god bless:)

My 3000gt starts for about 5 seconds and then shuts off. The alarm randomly went off tonight.. Could it be a security system? Or what other ideas do you guys have out there?


Try going to your local Autozone store and ask them to check
your vehicle for emissions and other engine problems.
This is a free service. They will show you a print out of the probable causes of the problem you are having and the cost of the parts you need to fix your vehicle.

Sounds like your alternator went out or not making good connection at the battery terminals, preventing the battery from being charged. If the battery does not charge, you will use up the battery energy to maintain the vehicle running UNTIL you deplete the battery. the more accesories you have on, the faster it discharges till the point of killing your ignition on your engine. You definitely have a charging issue, more than likely, your alternator went out.

2001 Chevy blazer check engine light has been on then last night ,blazer overheated and wouldnt start got towed home started after it cooled off added water to radiator the engine died and will not start...


It sounds to me that your engine shut itself off when it was overheated. If that's the case then you are looking at a major engine repair based on what you are telling us.An engine that gets hot enough to shut itself off does serious damage internally before it dies. You will need to take it to a shop to a complete diagnosis. Hope this helps.

Sounds like the alternator / voltage regulator is malfunctioning or there is a bad connection to / from the alternator / battery.

Do you have a multimeter so you could test the alternator -- or could you take the car to a parts store such as Auto Zone where they could test the alternator for you ?

When I went out to start my 04 G35 tonight it turns over but will not start. Sound like the starter is not turning the engine at all. I last drove it yesterday with no problems at all


There is a solenoid that pushes the starter gear onto the flywheel to engage the start process...sounds like the solenoid is either bad or is stuck...you can try tapping it gently with a hammer to see if it will engage...the solenoid is usually on the starter and is the smaller of the two cylinders

Car wont turn over!!!!!!!!!!


Based on what you described, sounds like you need a starter. The solenoid is not engaging the starter with the engine, tapping it will work for a while but eventually the starter will die or "freewheel" which it sounds like yours is doing.

the first place to start is the flashing engine lite. that means cylinders are not firing at all or improperly and driving it like that for even short period could cause heavier damage. particularly valves and cat converter(s) the computer really needs to be scanned for codes in order to proceed. did the oil lite come on before or after engine quit. after engine quit would be normal cause it stalled. its possible that it needs spark plugs and/or coils. or more
